The United Nations celebrates philosophy the third Thursday of each November
Tonight Kutztown will hear from a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-things-done kind of philosopher: Thomas Pogge, Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs at Yale University.
A prime mover of the Health Impact Fund (whose advisory board includes last year’s KU Philosophy Day speaker Noam Chomsky), Pogge has sought constructive ways to put his robust sense of justice—he studied under John Rawls, after all—to work on the effects of global poverty.
Pogge speaks tonight, Nov. 13 at 7 pm in Boehm 145 on the topic, “World Poverty: Explanations and Responsibilities.”
